Episode Description:

Sex and intimacy are key components of healthy relationships. Dementia robs intimacy from relationships. Partners' sexuality needs lag behind this cruel thievery. Graceful Aging tackles the rights and wrongs occurring during these troubling times with experienced dementia expert Debra Mittlebach.

How do "well" partners balance diminishing intimacy with their continuing desire for sexual relations? What can family members do when confronting inappropriate sexual behavior? "These are very difficult moments that try everyone's emotions," said Host Gregory Bator. "Debra Mittlebach handled these issues with a surgeon's sensitive touch."

This Graceful Aging episode is an important part of the dementia series. "Our fervent hope is this show helps prolong intimacy and sexuality in the most meaningful way for couples," says Bator. "These are tough problems worth talking about." Join the frank conversation.
